department after superstorm sandy hits. the man was lying on his roof when an officer in a basket was lowered to the roof and pulled him up. you can see that it's just absolutely amazing. of course a lot of this kind of stuff going on. now, one forecast firm is predicting that superstorm sandy could cost 20 billion dollars in property damage in the united states. joining us now, the president of forensic weather consultant. howard, this is obviously just the beginning, isn't it? >> this is just the beginning. you know, i know for a fact from talking to some friends of mine, that searchs and rescues are still -- that searches and rescues are still underway, making sure there are no victims left in the houses. we have a lot of emergency personnel there. then we can start to pick up the pieces. storm surge is only about 1 to 3 feet. it's still in the homes right now in parts of suffolk county and we have until about 12:00 noon today before high tide starts to go out. that's the good news. that's when the weather will start receding and some of these homes could be pumped out but not before the d
. >>> tallying up the damage from superstorm sandy, cnbc's jackie deangeles is here with what's moving your money and even the initial numbers are staggering. >> reporter: that's exactly right. ihs global insight saying the superstorm could end up costing about $20 billion in property damage and $30 billion in lost business and those figures could be elevated when you account for flood damage as well. a lot of people don't have extra insurance for floods. meantime longer term the storm may not pack as much of a punch. some economists are saying slightly lower growth in the coming weeks will be offset by rebuilding and repair as we see a boom later on. keep in mind that some are going to be hurt more than others. for instance, restaurants. say you lost a few days of business, you probably aren't going to see a later benefit, chris. >> speaking of billions, george lucas is already in the, shall we say, filthy rich category but now i guess you could say he's about to become obsceny rich. >> reporter: sci-fi in other words ev-- nerds everywhere are excited. lucas will become disney's second largest i

: superstorm sandy has led to a flood of desperate drivers waiting in lines miles deep just to get gas. so we're here in hasbrouck heights, new jersey, where the line of cars waiting for gas stretches out of sight. we're going to find out just how long the line is. car number 5, 28, white pickup, number 58. >> i got here at 9:59 a.m., and it's 1:00 in the afternoon. i'm by myself. i can't leave the car. i feel like i'm going to faint over here. >> reporter: 102, but lines in new jersey and new york not just for gas. >> you're seeing the line completely around the building. >> reporter: with the subway largely out of commission in brooklyn, the line of people waiting for the bus stretched for blocks. >> where are the buses? >> reporter: driving wasn't much easier either. checkpoints were set up on the highways to force people to carpool. so this is car number 150, and this line continues further than the eye can see. after hours of waiting, those at the end are in for some bad news. >> no more gas, guys. >> reporter: sandy may be long gone, but certainly not forgotten, and already some station
and could go either way. we want to take you back to the aftermath of superstorm sandy. take a look at this, this is what president obama can expect to see when he visits the hard-hit area of atlantic city, new jersey, this afternoon. homes destroyed, boats tossed on their sides and parts of the iconic boardwalk completely damaged. at one point 85% of the city was submerged in water. joining me by phone is atlantic city's mayor, lorenzo langford. sir, git's good to have you her. your director of emergency management calls this the worst for atlantic city. the president is going to be in the city with you and governor christie around 1:00 this afternoon. what do you need to tell him about the immediate needs of the people there in your city? >> well, i think the first thing that we need to do is to get power restored as quickly as we can. you know, there's an old saying that pictures are better than words. and for the president to come to atlantic city, i am most appreciative. he will see for himself the devastation that has been wrecked on this city by sandy. but i'm happy to say that altho
of momentum. superstorm sandy hit and you feel that momentum gone and what you are seeing is barack obama is commander in chief. talking to the red cross. working with the army corps of engineers. so the president's handled all this this in a very astute way. it's lyndon johnson did a good job of hurricane betsy in 1975 and george w. bush was awful during hurricane katrina because he seemed cold, callous and indifferent. >> what do you make of the closeness of all of this to the election, as well? the time line, the time line. >> it's a bizarre event. in 1992, with hurricane andrew with george herbert walker bush beat up by democrats for not responding properly to that florida hurricane but that took place in august so people -- there's always some fallout. right now this is so close to the election there's not a downside for president obama. the complaints coming from the greater new york area will be in about two or three weeks with problems of mold or fema didn't do something correctly or the army corps arguing. but the president doesn't have to deal with that because they're in emerge
of superstorm sandy. >> the two bonded at the community center in new jersey, where dozens have been sleeping since their homes were destroyed. aboard marine 1, the president and governor shared a rivetting one-hour aerial tour of the utter devastation. >> we will not forget, we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need, until you rebuilt. >> a chance for the president to show off the benefits of incumbency. just as the latest fox news poll shows he is facing big questions about his leadership. with 52% of likely voters disapproving of his performance on the economy. while only 45% approve. 47% disapprove of his handling of the libya. 49% approve. likely voters are closely divided on the question of whether the obama administration tried to mislead americans about the terror attack in libya. 44% say yes, 47% say no. >> the american people deserve the truth. >> four republican senators today fired off a letter to the president, demanding to know, "what steps you and your administration took or failed to take before, during and after the terrorist attack to protect ame
ago and while they don't like to talk publicly about the linkage between the superstorm sandy and political impact it's clear that they feel that they have derived political advantage from this. it stopped the perception of momentum for romney, it changed the subject. it focused the dynamic on president obama being able to be bipartisan and it put governor romney out of play because he wasn't in the position to do anything official. and so at least from the perception standpoint they do feel as if things are turning more in their favor in the final days. >> woodruff: jonathan, what are you picking up about the storm and the impact of it happening? the impact that it happened at all and the role that the president has played in the storm and the aftermath on the campaign? >> i think the major impact is it really suspended the campaign for effectively 48 hours. there was no campaign. and really still now two days later much of the news coverage is devoted to the storm. so i think that has hurt governor romney who has tried to really drive an aggressive message against president
the boardwalk should be. take a look at where it is now. town after town, annihilated in the wake of superstorm sandy. we're not done with the wind yet. while everyone's cleaning up, sandy is way up here in canada. but all of these winds, when you see these different colored arrows, the way they're going. these winds across new york city area, and when we put this model into effect, those with 20-mile-per-hour to 30-mile-per-hour winds that will take us all the way through today. that's all the way from the great lakes, well back into new england, putting up with the strong, gusty winds again today. back to everyone. >> and, sam, we're not done with the threats yet, either. there's one terrifying so many new jersey communities -- gas leaks that could send homes up in flames at any moment. abc's terry moran has the latest on that from bay head. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. as dawn comes up over the atlantic behind me, it's hard to imagine that placid ocean rushing over the sea wall, obliterating a sand dune and slamming into these multimillion-dollar homes on what they
, annihilated in the wake of superstorm sandy. we're not done with the wind yet. while everyone's cleaning up, sandy is way up here in canada. but all of these winds, when you see the arrows the way they're going. these winds across new york city, are 20-mile-per-hour to 30-mile-per-hour winds that will take us all the way through today. that's all the way from the great lakes, well back into new england, putting up with the strong, gusty winds again today. >> and, sam, we're not done with the threats yet, either. >>> gas leaks could send homes up in flames at any moment. abc's terry moran has the latest on that from bay head. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. as dawn comes up over the atlantic behind me, it's hard to imagine that placid ocean obliterating a sand dune and slamming these homes. you can see it here, knocking homes off foundations. ripping out the infrastructure. there's countless gas lines ruptured up and down this shoreline. that's the main danger now, gas. >> one spark, i know it. just really never expected to be what it was. >> reporter: mary ward, like
without power because of superstorm sandy, bringing in this blizzard. we've been all over the area. we can tell you, it is like a ghost town in some areas. no gas stations are open. the hospital is operating on generator power only. they're only seeing emergencies today. also all of the gas stations that are closed as well. we've also been in the upper elevations where we've seen downed trees and power lines. that is causing a big problem. they're going to have to get with that. it will take a while. back to you. martha: boy, kelly, good to have you there to get the story out because it is, it is awful. and it is cold on top of everything else for all the poor people who have no power in their homes. kelly, thank you very much. we'll see more later on today. bill: you don't expect to see something like that after this storm but there it is, in plain sight. the storm damage in new york city is stunning too. these floodwaters they run like rivers through parts of lower manhattan now. we will take you there live in a moment. wow, screen left. martha: that is one of the most devastating storie
to everybody trying to recover from the superstorm sandy. we pray for them because we know it has got to be difficult. some people don't have heat. some people can't get gasoline, food. so our hearts go out to all of the people trying to recover. bill: thank you, sir. i appreciate you saying that. a lot of our colleagues affected by this certainly our friend and neighbors all over the east coast. thank you for that. what about a secretary of business? good idea? >> i, no, not a good idea. first i think governor romney summed it up best. we don't need a secretary of business. we need a president who understands business. there in lies the difference. here's the second point. if it took president obama four years to come up with this lame idea of a secretary of business, i certainly don't want to give him four more years to come up with another lame idea while this economy is still running on fumes. that's the bottom line. bill: he says instead of nine different departments dealing with things like giving loans to small business administration or helping companies with exports you put t
to the superstorm that is threatening the entear east coast. hurricane sandy is already responsible for at least 60 deaths. right now, churning off the coast of north carolina and the northeast is bracing for a huge impact. our live team coverage starts with chief meteorologistist rick reichmuth in our fox extreme weather center and anna live on long island. we start with rick. >> very incredible storm and fromminging storm. it will be under the influence of two different features. one is hurricane sandy. still the warm water below and still potentially strengthening from that. off towards the west a front moving in and this hurricane is stuck between high pressure off to the east and this front. that colder air is sunday this warmer air is going to rapidly strengthen the storm as we move forward over the next 2436 hours. it will also change it from a hurricane to a different type of a storm leak a nor'easter. just because we are not talking about hurricane eventual hly do not let it get your guard down and think it will not be a big storm. it will likely be the most significant storm we have dealt
ahead. that's a little tease. the election day forecast coming up. we're getting rid of sandy the next couple of days. this superstorm still lingering over the top of buffalo. you've seen the pictures, heard the stories. the question now is where is it going to fall in history? the most extensive u.s. hurrica hurricanes estimated at $50 billion, billion, dollars. right around andrew and these numbers are taking into account inflation over the years from andrew in 1992. so this is one of the worst storms in our country's history as far as how much damage it has done. as far as the forecast, it is cold and chilly in the areas without power. we need that power on in a hurry. it's not going to warm up anytime soon as we head into november tomorrow. as far as the forecast today, a few showers out there especially northern new england. the rest of the holiday forecast does look quiet out there. the west coast does have some rain and showers we're dealing with. now i teased you with the election day forecast. this is kind of my first look ahead for it. as far as what we're dealing with, it lo
